Well after some great advice I bought an 85mmf1.8 to go with my 400D

Two sets of shots below, home and away.

Away have had "quick fix "in elements 4

Approaching take off.

#1



#2

Dunk,






This shot has been cropped at the bottom slightly(to eliminate ref's head).Looking down my home court at a "three pointer"

#3


Same game,

#4


All shots were at ISO1600, 1/320th, f2 and 85mm

I can't understand why #3 is soo dark
C&C welcomed.

Well as everyone else has been so quiet I will say hi and it's good to see a guy from the UK shooting basketball!! You have a good lens for the job and now need to work with the limitations of the camera (don't we all).

The quickest way for improvement is to sort the white balance out. I've done a quick edit on one of yours which I think helps get it closer to original. If possible shoot with manual WB when shooting indoors as this should get you closer to where you want to be.

As for number 3, I'm guessing the lights for the stands are down and you have stronger lighting on the player.... whatever it is I actually like it, the only thing missing is the ball to make a great shot.

Keep on shooting and posting!

Mark
